One more thing...I've got a horrible cold right now and I'm especially congested at night. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Thanks for visiting, bigfatmama! Lavender, eucalyptus, Young Living's Raven or RC blends diffused at night might help. Inhaling them very deeply from your hand also works well. I actually swab the inside of my nostrils with a cotton swab saturated with lavender oil to breathe all night long. Works for colds and allergies! :)Get better soon!
